Racism exisits and it surely exisits on this board in many posts and threads. There have been at least a hundred threads that was removed in 2009 with racist overtones so why wouldn't the poll reflect some of the very same? Kudos for V-man!
Let me get this straight: you make the direct link between 'a hundred (racist) threads' being removed in '09 & assume the poll would 'reflect some of the very same thing'? What is your evidence this is so? I'll answer that for you - you have none. Is it possible some voted based on the color of each candidates skin? Certainly possible, however, any number of explanations are possible to explain how & why people voted the way they did. Unless you are able to make the direct link between folks voting on skin color, suggesting the possibility is an empty exercise.
